Maximizing Opportunities for Success

  • Introducing the OPLC Nature Walk

    The "Nature Walk" was recently installed on the floor between the red and blue pods.  The "Nature Walk" is an area for students to use to exercies and move throughout their day.  Exercises in the "Nature Walk" are desinged to help kids keep their bodies and minds active.  Exercise througout the day can increase time on task and encourage children to be more focused in the classroom.

    Soup Tower Challenge 

    How tall is your teacher?  Do you think your class can bring in enough soup cans to make a tower as tall as your teacher?  How many towers can your class make? 

    Hunger can be hard to see, however, many families in the Octorara School District are struggling to put food on their tables.  We would like to help the Octorara Area Food Cupboard with their soup drive. They are requesting healthy, hearty, meaty soups to help over 880 households in the Octorara Area School District.  Your donation can make a real difference. Please give what you “CAN” !  Classes will be making soup can towers on 2/22/19
